Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. We awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received high grades in the category of long-term care as well. Indeed, we awarded it one of our most dominant grades in that area with a area of A-. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 79.29293 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received even higher grades in the area of nursing. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home an acceptable grade of C. This ended up being this facility's worst area. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
